    Hi Chris, I think my 05 VW Polo has water leaking in from the eurethane sticking the front windshield down. I was wondering if I could just lay a bead of new eurethane down in the gaps between the roof and the A pillars to seal it up as I'm only 15 and don't have the money for a new windshield 😅 Would this be a good or bad idea??

    Chris fix is not a professional anything .. in most of his mechanical videos he is bottom line barely adequate you u tubers think he is awesome and knowledgeable because you do not know enough to see all the shoddy mistakes he makes. when replacing urethane windows these days don't piss around get a professional they have all the correct tools to do it flawlessly and back up their work. As a painter in the old days using buyl rubber to install windows I would never farm out the work it simply to easy not to do it yourself. Urethane is a whole other animal it has no forgiveness and the materials are more expensive. professional body repair shops do not touch glass work anymore unless they install custom glass and there is a reason for it. if you got access to $20 glass windshields then maybe this is viable but new glass installed is really not that expensive on popular models.

    Used to be in this game until it went mad with too many jobs per day, driving crazy miles between jobs and generally not getting home until 10 - 11 at night from an early start and fitting windscreens in the dark, rain, snow and really low temps and auto glazing companies wonder why they have a very high turnover of staff.
